My New Dress
One of the many presents I got for my birthday from my mum is this exquisite handmade dress. It was designed and made by the talented Tortilla Girl, whose Etsy store always has me drooling. Here's how she describes her work on this Pont-Neuf dress: I built this original design from scratch through the French design technique of "moulage": I pinned and tucked on a dress form and a live model until it was sculpted from my imagination with attention to drape and fit.
I'll be showing off other presents in the days to come, so stay tuned.
